Needing Help Installing Ubuntu

With the 7.10 live cd, both the regular startup and the low graphics mode
caused the screen to go blank and not return.  With the dell
remastered 7.04live cd, the regular startup caused an x server issue.
The low graphics
mode got all the way to the login screen, but required a username and
password (the default username looked to be 'ubuntu', and I tried several
passwords but I couldn't hit the right one).
